All About Sunglass Lenses

Find Your Perfect Sunglass Lenses

We also offer a variety of lens types, but which one is right for you? Learn more about the importance of choosing the right sunglass lenses and the options available to you.

Progressive Sunglasses

If you have trouble seeing both near and far distances, progressive lenses offer an ideal solution. Unlike older bifocals and multifocals, our progressives automatically adjust to distances without having visible and visually unappealing lines on the surface of the lens. The result is a seamless vision experience.

Progressive lenses also require less time to transition between near and far objects, so you can focus more quickly with less eyestrain.

Prescription Sunglasses

Sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory—they let you enjoy the outdoors, play sports and drive safely while protecting your eyes from potentially harmful UV rays. Many optometrists recommend wearing prescription sunglasses all year long.

We have a huge selection of prescription sunglasses to suit any style, budget and vision issue. We also feature a variety of popular sunglass brands, including Ray-Ban, Oakley, Maui Jim, Adidas, Rudy Project and more.

Our prescription sunglasses are made using 100% Internal Freeform lenses which are created using 3D digital software to map the unique characteristics of your eyes directly to the lenses. They deliver a unique and customized vision experience. Most of our optical frames can have your prescription sunglass lenses added to them so that you can create custom sunglasses that look and fit just the way you want.

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses are the perfect option for your prescription sunglasses. They reduce glare from a variety of surfaces such as light reflecting off the road or water. They are ideal lenses ideal for boating, biking, golfing, skiing and other popular outdoor activities.

Polarized lenses are great for driving and can help reduce the glare from long, flat surfaces such as the hood of your car or the surface of the road. They can also be worn indoors by individuals who have light sensitivity and patients who've recently had cataract surgery and can't be exposed to intense light sources.

These unique lenses work because reflected light moves horizontally to create annoying and sometime even dangerous light waves that appear on surfaces as glare. Polarized lenses are designed to block and limit these horizontal light waves to reduce the glare that you're likely to encounter.

Photochromic Lenses

Photochromic lenses (also known as "transitions" or "variable tint lenses") darken when exposed to direct sunlight then fade back to clear when you return indoors. The molecules inside of photochromic lenses are designed to be activated by UV light. The more light they're exposed to, the darker they'll become. That means they'll automatically adjust to specific light levels both indoors and outdoors. Photochromic lenses also shield your eyes from damaging UVA and UVB rays.

The result is a single pair of eyewear that function as both eyeglasses and sunglasses—offering the best of both worlds. Photochromic lenses are available in a variety of styles, including high-index lenses, bifocals, progressive lenses and Internal Freeform lenses.
